Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3414) Bring Hunspell for Lucene into analysis module
Date Tue, 06 Sep 2011 10:00:10 GMT


Chris Male commented on LUCENE-3414:

bq. how is OpenOffice dealing with those dictionaries since they are now an ASF incubation
project? Maybe the dictionaries are under ASL eventually?

Bizarrely, from what I can see in the OpenOffice [SVN|],
they are still under their original license.  I guess thats something they will have to sort
out during incubation.

I don't see the licenses changing since the dictionaries tend to be developed by national
language organisations, but maybe the ASF will negotiate.

 It has the benefit of supporting dictionaries for a wide array of languages.   
> It seems to still be being used but has fallen out of date.  I think it would benefit
from being inside the analysis module where additional features such as decompounding support,
could be added.
